    Here’s Why You Should Worry About What Happened In The Market Yesterday

    Here’s Why You Should Worry About What Happened In The Market Yesterday

    The thing with the stock market is that it gives you signals way ahead of time, but nobody wants to listen. The things I’ve been blabbering about over the past two years are the following:

    1. Higher interest rates will come just as the FED told us they would.
    2. Higher interest rates will squeeze valuations.
    3. Higher interest rates will slow down economic growth.
    4. Higher interest rates will slow down earnings growth.

    So, let’s start by discussing these.



    The 10-Year Treasury Passes 3%

    When the 10-year Treasury was below 3%, nobody seemed to care except a few crazy analysts like this scribe. However, when it crossed 3%, the market suddenly looked at what had been going on for nearly the last two years. More →

    I’ve discussed some silver miners that also represent interesting investing opportunities, so today I’ll first give a short update on silver and continue with my discussion on a few silver miners. More →

    If What The CEO Says Plays Out, This Silver Stock Could Explode

    • We’ll discuss the value of the silver First Majestic has in the ground.
    • We’ll also discuss the value of the company in relation to silver prices.
    • And we’ll discuss the corporate governance and the stories AG’s CEO likes to tell.

    I recently wrote about how silver looks good from a risk reward perspective. One of the most interesting silver stocks is First Majestic Silver (NYSE: AG).

    Curious About Marijuana Stocks? Here’s What You Need To Know About This Booming Industry

    • We are going to look into the economics of the cannabis industry.
    • The stock we’re analyzing today is Canopy Growth.
    • We’ll finish with what to do as a cannabis investor.



    Introduction

    When the market is overvalued as it is now and the probabilities of a recession hitting the economy soon are high, one might look for alternative investments to see whether there are some better risk reward opportunities, or at least to find ways to take advantage of the trend.

    Two such hot investment trends are marijuana stocks and lithium miners which we discussed yesterday. Today, I’ll touch on marijuana stocks to see whether they will ultimately be a fad that will burn investors or if there is some actual sector earning capacity. More →

    Lithium Is Hot, But Here’s What You Need To Know Before Investing In The Trend

    • Is the current decline a lithium buying opportunity?
    • We’ll analyze the sector, and the key factors to watch in the industry.
    • I’ll use a bottom up approach and discuss the company Lithium Americas.



    Introduction

    We all know the story about lithium and the expected surge in demand coming from the electric vehicle boom. However, some stocks haven’t performed as many expected in the last few months, and I want to look at what’s going on to see whether it’s a buying opportunity or if we should still stay clear of lithium miners.

    Today, I’ll use a bottom up approach to discuss Lithium Americas (NYSE: LAC). By analyzing the company, we will see how it fits in the lithium environment and what we have to seek out when analyzing investments as there is a high likelihood that lithium will be the place to be over the next 10 years due to its lightness.  More →

    These 4 Steps Will Save You In The Upcoming Market Crash

    A stock market crash is always around the corner.

    In the last 18 years, we’ve seen two crashes of 50% and if you live in the Netherlands, you still dream of those 2000 highs. Nevertheless, a 9-year bull market quickly erases all the painful memories.

    But forgetting what happened and how it looked is dangerous. If you haven’t lived through a stock market crash, you should at least try and think about it in order to be prepared as much as you can be.

    Have Everything In Stocks Now? Here’s Why You’ll Want To Rethink That

    • Perhaps the best counter option right now is short term bonds.
    • We’ll discuss Graham’s take and apply a contemporary perspective on it.



    Introduction

    Today, we’re going to continue our review of Benjamin Graham’s The Intelligent Investor with a discussion on the fourth chapter, General Portfolio Policy: The Defensive Investor.

    Graham clearly differentiates between aggressive and defensive investors where an aggressive investor spends a lot of time on research while a defensive one enjoys life. No matter whether you’re aggressive or defensive, this chapter is crucial for this environment as being defensive might be the most aggressive thing one can do. More →
